Default Looking for new headphones ($40-200)

Hey ABI, it's been a while! Well, I'm actually back in the market for a new pair of headphones. I had a pair of Panasonic HJE900's for about 3 months last year, but I found that the wire casing had gotten pulled back at the housing, so I had them returned and then the place I got them ran out of stock (which they failed to tell me when I returned it) and coincidentally I'm now down $140 dollars.

Since then I've been running on some Skullcandy Ink'd, which honestly aren't bad for the price (~$10), but I've really been craving an actual quality set of headphones. Money at this point isn't much of an issue, but I'd say my max is definitely about $200. I'm looking for something that's a good value, ideally somewhere around $100 if possible. I'm also not opposed to getting IEM's or over-the-ear cans, as long as they're comfortable. I can't stand on-the-ear headphones, as after about 15-30 minutes they start getting really painful.

The main stuff I listen to is various types of rock and alternative. The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Franz Ferdinand, The Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Nirvana, The Black Keys, Beck, Green Day, the Killers, Kasabian, Queen, T. Rex, Radiohead, etc. So basically, I don't really need anything with booming base, and my main priorities are good build quality and good clarity.
